and baby makes three

A week ago Keryn gave birth to our baby girl. Alayna Bailey Huia Doran arrived at 5:35pm on Sunday 8th September and was a healthy 3.96 kgs. This past week has been an interesting and steep learning curve, as I’m sure all new parents will attest. The following is a photo essay of our first week as a family of three.

There will be many more firsts and a fair few bumps along the way but as your parents we’ll love every minute. So happy first week Alayna!
